The actor might have replaced Daniel Radcliffe as highest earning Brit, but he was beaten by Twilight co-stars Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner
Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson has been named as the highest paid Brit in Hollywood, taking home a cool £17 million in the past year.
The 24-year-old comes in at 15th overall on the Hollywood rich list, compiled by Vanity Fair magazine.
Rob steals the crown from Daniel Radcliffe, who was previously Britain’s highest paid actor – thanks to his lucrative work in the Harry Potter franchise.
However, while Rob may have been top of the Brits, he was beaten by both his Twilight co-stars, with Kristen Stewart coming in 13th, with earnings of £17.6 million, and Taylor Lautner ranking 9th, having taken home a total of £20.7 million.
The list makes 18-year-old Taylor the highest earning teenage star, while Kristen is the highest paid female.
Coming in at the top spot was director James Cameron with a whopping £159 million, closely followed by Johnny Depp in second place with £62m.
